“Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the Master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly He find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.” Mark 13:35-37

History records that fateful night on April 13th, 1912, when that “unsinkable” ship, The Titanic, http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:St%C3%B6wer_Titanic_(colourized).jpgstruck an iceberg, and began to sink.

 

.

Yes, while many people were in bed asleep, or still partying on that late Saturday night, that great metaphor, The Mighty Titanic silently began to take on water.

.

And soon, the ship sank into the icy depths of the North Atlantic Sea.

.

About one-third of the passengers were saved, leaving the other two-thirds to go down to their watery grave.

THE SLEEPING DISCIPLES

.

http://www.flickr.com/groups/wikipedia_loves_art/pool/tags/shooting_brooklyn/

The Bible records another fateful hour in which a very rude awakening occurred.

.

It was late at night, when Jesus was pleading with His Father in the Garden of Gethsemane. And though He pleaded again and again with His sleeping Disciples, warning them to awaken and watch and pray along with Him, and keep their heavy eyes wide open.

.

Well, the rest of the story is so well known, it is superfluous to recount it.

.

Sufficed to say, those disciples were totally unprepared for the storm which burst out upon them!

.

It was a very “rude awakening”, as they say!

THE BIBLE IS “THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY”

Revelation 19:10

.

http://www.flickr.com/groups/wikipedia_loves_art/pool/tags/shooting_brooklyn/

Yes, just how does all this relate to our current circumstances? 

.

 

Listen…“The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?” Isaiah 33:14

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Book_of_Revelation_Chapter_9-1_%28Bible_Illustrations_by_Sweet_Media%29.jpg.

Here is another prophecy concerning these current frightful moments, when a storm is just about to burst upon us!

.

And this storm will strike fear into God’s professed people who likewise have fallen asleep spiritually.

WHY ARE WE SPIRITUALLY ASLEEP?

.

http://www.flickr.com/groups/wikipedia_loves_art/pool/tags/shooting_brooklyn/

But one question we must ask ourselves is this: “Why are we sleeping in the very hour when we should be watching and praying, knowing that we are at the very end?” 

.

Well, of course, one answer to this perplexing question is that our church leaders today are singing a, “sweet lullaby” of sorts, by reassuring the Christian community that they don’t have to worry about the coming tempest!

THE PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE HERESY

.

http://www.flickr.com/groups/wikipedia_loves_art/pool/tags/shooting_brooklyn/

On a 24/7/365 basis, the prophets of the airways constantly sooth our apprehensions by reassuring us, “We won’t even be here, folks! God is going to Rapture us out of here, just prior to the coming tribulation!”

.

Well, such a lie as this smacks right in the face of so many solemn warnings by God, to put our heavenly armor on, “that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day!” Ephesians 6:13

.

Yes, the Bible is replete with exhortations to be ready for the coming Time of Trouble!

.

But this isn’t the only lullaby being sung to our sleeping Church!

.

No, Satan, once being the great musician in Heaven, is now down here playing his lullabies one-after-another to Christians in all quarters of Christendom!

And how is this possible? How in the world couldhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:At_a_loss.svg the Christian community ever allow Satan such leeway in which to perform spiritual lullabies to sing us to sleep!?

.

Preposterous!”

“I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!”

.

http://www.flickr.com/groups/wikipedia_loves_art/pool/tags/shooting_brooklyn/

Well, just listen to today’s music being recorded and played throughout the Christian community! “I love you, Jesus! And You love me too!” “I worshhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Avril_Lavigne_high_mic,_Hammersmith_Apollo_(tint).jpg#/media/File:Avril_Lavigne_high_mic,_Hammersmith_Apollo_(tint).jpgip You, and adore You!” “You are so faithful! I will praise Your holy Name forever!”

.

Well, if we were the Church of Philadelphia, or the Church of Smyrna, such “positive and happy” lyrics might be OK.

.

But we’re NOT!

.

We were the “lukewarm Laodiceans” whom God has now spewed out of His mouth! (For greater understanding into this truth, please read….October 30th (Laodicea Now!)

SYRUPY-SWEET VIOLS…AND LOTS OF LAUGHS!

.

http://www.flickr.com/groups/wikipedia_loves_art/pool/tags/shooting_brooklyn/

No wonder the Christian community is fast asleep!

.

At such a frightful hour as this we maybe should be listening to marching music, or some other alarming music! 

.

Yes, on much of today’s Christian radio stations, there is a real lack of watchfulness, as the radio hosts often make little jests and quips between songs, disarming the listeners, putting them totally at ease!

“I SAY UNTO ALL…WATCH!”

.

http://www.flickr.com/groups/wikipedia_loves_art/pool/tags/shooting_brooklyn/

The fact is, we are now living in an hour in which Jesus warns…Watch ye http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpgtherefore: for ye know not when the Master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly He find you sleeping. AND WHAT I SAY UNTO YOU I SAY UNTO ALL…WATCH!” Mark 13:35-37

ANY GOOD NEWS?

.

http://www.flickr.com/groups/wikipedia_loves_art/pool/tags/shooting_brooklyn/

Well, if there is any Good News, it is this: before everything explodes, we all need to get on our spiritual armor and go each to our respective posts, and watch and pray…pray and watch!

.

And as to the question about our listening to today’s music, it might be better to simply put on a good audio Bible and listen to that!

.

This would far better for the watchful Christian!

.

“And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time

your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting,

and drunkenness, and cares of this life,

and so that day come upon you unawares.

For as a snare shall it come on all them

that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

Watch ye therefore, and pray always,

that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things

that shall come to pass,

and to stand before the Son of man.”

Luke 21:34-36

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

Revelation 12 Dragon w/text

.

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman…And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads…And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Revelation 12:1, 3, 15

LOCATING THE DRAGON

.

THE DRAGON of REVELATION 12 CONSTELLATION . The Dragon Constellation can be located by finding Orion in winter months. The Dragon is to Orion’s left, and the Dragon’s mouth is right next to Orion’s shield. This Dragon’s mouth is the V-like constellation The Hyades Cluster, which is the very same constellation that comprises the head of Taurus the Bull. In other words, Hyades is also known as the head of Taurus the Bull. And Hyades is the mouth of this Dragon.

.

Revelation 12 Dragon w/text

.

The tip of the Dragon’s tail is composed of that star-cluster known as The Pleiades. The Pleiades is actually in the shape of a lion’s furry tassel tip of his tail. The sketch below shows this Pleiades as the tail tip.

.

Now with aid of a dark starry night, you may begin to connect this mouth and the tail with a very long body in an oval shape. The front and back legs are very well-defined with stars. The front legs are made partially of Taurus. The back legs and rear fin are made of the Cetus Constellation. But the long oval-shaped body has relatively few stars, but can been seen, howbeit with a dark starry night. The four stars of the front fins are made partially of Taurus. This Dragon constellation appears in the eastern horizon about mid-summer in the pre-dawn hours, spewing his flood-waters northward toward the Woman of Revelation 12 (Woman in Travail). The Wave of Water is primarily composed of the Constellation Auriga. The are two more less bright stars which are closest to the Dragon’s mouth. These two dimmer stars are also part of this Wave of Water.
